I've come across this phrase numerous times and found that most government (US and UK) forms have been translated as such.

Placing "negosyo" for business limits this phrase for use with businesses only. But with the above translation it can be applied to government, hospital even volunteer facilities.

In the example below, you will see that it can even be applied to commercial posts, advertisements, etc.

Example sentence(s):
  • Please call about the items I posted during business hours.
  • Tumawag lamang tungkol sa mga ipinaskil ko sa oras na may-gawa.
